Powersystems have connected 30% of all U.K. Wind Farm generation

July 31, 2012

Powersystems have been actively involved in the UK renewables sector since completing the second commercial UK land based wind farm project at Goonhilly Downs in Cornwall back in 1993.

The land based wind farm turbines  at Goonhilly downs were replaced in 2010. The old turbines generated electricity on 98% of days during their time  and It is estimated that there have been a total of 240 million revolutions per turbine and more than 3 billion revolutions for the whole wind farm since it became operational. 

From these early days, and with our extensive experience in designing and installing high voltage infrastructure, this has placed Powersystems in a position highly suited to carryout wind farm electrical balance of plant contracts.

We have been actively involved with wind farm projects ranging from single turbines to 70 plus turbine sites. Using this early experience enabled Powersystems  to move into other renewable technologies, with 6 GW of green renewable energy completed, connected and generating to the electricity grid in the Renewable, Generation, Electric Vehicle, Nuclear and Battery Energy Storage sectors.

Powersystems Renewable Energy Statistics:

Since 2000, Powersystems have connected some 285 land based wind farms to the grid.  To date we have connected thousands of wind turbines to grid, with a total generated capacity of 5 GW, this currently represents 30% of all U.K. land based Wind Farm generation.
